Larry Sorters is a friend, worked for the XIT, and is a landowner.
So, when everyone is still working their way through their inbox,
flagging for priority,
keeping WAY too much
and still thinking “I better have a paper backup”….
I thought this video was appropriate.
And thinking of that “rule” my other taught me that she’d learned at some “tips for success” seminar of her era….
to “Never touch a piece of Paper Twice….”
And thinking of a friend’s daughter who works with “Paperwork Reduction Act”
who had recently attended a seminar at Getty Foundation that said paper was the best archival record…..
And wondering if that also was a different ink, a different paper, a different era?
And understanding that there really are some efficiencies in accessing ALL THIS INFO online, when it all works and systems “go” assumed….
How are We Going to Manage ALL THIS INFORMATION?
That’s a open ended question…please post.

Adorned and Unformed, that is The Rose.
When No One’s Around,
She strikes a Pose.
It’s Time to Work
but was taught to Play…
Toil’d at night
turmoil’d by day…
Her hi plains and low plains,
all over the Spectrum…
Without a filter,
“Please ‘teeth‘ not the r.Ct.m!”
But maybe can Learn
to ‘Rein it In...‘
Stop the churn
pick up the Pen.
Sew herself up
with velvet and flax…
A Fine yoga pillow
Find Some sort of Mid-dle
Perhaps in the ‘taile’
For circles and curls
perhaps weren’t a Snail…
But A Serpent’s Dance…
…….just waiting to Prance!
So, tame the attack
and temper the fear…
Roses and Poses
with her You can play…
For Rose is unformed
not even near….

Meeting Garry Kasparov.
I’m “testing” some stuff but thought I might as well share Wed. night’s Plaza Library Events and the subsequent shared family texts. So, don’t look for substance in this first post in about a YEAR, it’s more of a technical ‘back in the saddle’ of wordpress and the new responsive app. I AM PLEASED. Thank you [I don’t want to say name of company until I ask them] for such good work.
Kasparov began with addressing the Soviet philosophy of rule by propaganda with mental intimidation being manifest in their grooming of youth to be world leaders at Chess. So, I of course thought of my son and his father playing Chess when Jack was in grade school. I share that below.
I thought he handled the questions very well, especially in giving no comment to the mention of Edward Snowden except to say (and I’m paraphrasing from memory)…
“Do you mean am I going to talk about security and privacy in America? No. Edward Snowden told secrets of American Government and he is now in prison in Russia.”
Okay! Got it!
Didn’t appear a fan of current administration from perspective of lack of credibility in enforcing word (stick). Also mentioned difficulty for Europe to “bond” with U.S. Government when each administration swings to extremes on pendulum, but didn’t touch the audience person stating that the two party system was broke.
And, I had to share the picture with family because I did inadvertently meet Garry up close and personal.
A Good Funny, Jack! Mom was listening and you always make me laugh…this is GREATLY appreciated. We never talked about your era of chess players and mine, but I believe the Bobby Fisher game was the same summer as Watergate. I remember because at Sherwood Forest Camp, they set up the TV in the Lodge and we saw both the game and the hearings.
The Spartans Cheer at Chess and are Dressed down by the Chess Team…(Go to NBC.com SNL…don’t think I can embed these links).
So what does one do?
The Perfect Cheer! So, if you were ever a chess player or a cheerleader or yell leader, go to nbc.com to see this video if you want to feel fond of everyone in your high school. And, here’s Bobby Fischer with Bob Hope, not to steal Garry’s Winter thunder. Enjoy the Art, Funny, and Games that bring the world together at the Table.
Thank you, Garry for the Stop in KC. Thank you Crosby Kemper for the Great Programming.
And anyone watching, please share if you remember where you were when you saw Bobby Fisher or Kasparov play Chess in the World Championship. And, mostly, selfishly, if there is anything technically that doesn’t work in this site!

Sometimes I see something creative and inspiring and I have to talk to the person who made it, wore it, put it out there for us. And people are so kind about sharing why…how….. Like Gary, when he told me about his beautiful handmade bike bags.
And I think I have sometimes called Gary homeless, just to identify, but Gary isn’t homeless at all. Because Gary knows more than anyone that this land was made for you and me and he.
Gary’s outlook on life seemed like a great way to start Monday morning. And, since the days are getting shorter, you might see him. He’ll be heading from Jackson Hole back down south and maybe hangin’ for a while in Wichita. So, I wanted to alert you to look for him.
We may have met him before and we’ll certainly meet him again. He is a pleasure…[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31x1hYntyKk[/youtube]
And, given all the negative stuff we see about our country sometimes, I feel his outlook is refreshing. Gary takes the things I complicate, and makes me realize how complicated we can make our lives.
I would expect that riding on a bike across the countryside throughout the year is a pretty good way to see how beautiful America really is. Here is Gary, whittling it down to the essence…

Catherine, Catherine! What a wonderful evening at The Cinemark.
I have to apologize for our late response
in expressing our praise and gratitude
for your efforts
in the groundbreaking arena of
Women’s Directorial Debuts.
I had to just take this upon myself, as Paula has been cyber-ly overwhelmed.
I have to say that the handsome picture of Tucker the day of the event
gave me pause…(paws?)…that is, what to wear.
He must have been busy helping you or primping as I had no response,
so I chose the Red Boa.
And, I’m so pleased with the t.
It expresses exactly my philosophy,
that we are feminists
because we feel we have something to say that will make a contribution
Not what we wear, it’s how we participate.
And personally, I like a little diversity, new blood.
So, to Hollywood’s Uber Director, Catherine Michon
and her team of Tucker and Bruce.
And soon, of Tom (Rooker) with your next flick filmed in ‘his home town’ Kansas City.
Now, what can we do to make this a great city in which to film a movie?
I can tell you that we MUST have better lighting.
We will roll out the Red Carpet and put down a Star, for you have earned yours.
Thank you for the effort.
